Parque de la Reserva, Lima

Following our short stay in Chincha, on Sunday, June 8, 2014, we climbed aboard a bus for the 5-hour return to Lima.  After our arrival, Michael and I took a cab to Parque de la Reserva to see the "Magic Water Circuit".  This park has been named the “world´s largest fountain complex in a public park” by the Guinness Book of World Records.  At select times during the evening, the 13 water-fountains are colorfully illuminated and a special laser light and sound show occurs at the large central fountain.

This was the grand finale to our visit of Michael's mission area.  The next morning we would take a flight to Cusco and begin our tour of the sacred valley of the Incas.  Before our travels began, we left extra luggage at the mission office to pick up prior to our flight out of the country.  Below are a couple of photos of the office in the San Isidro District, not far from President Douglas' home.  Elder Dunn was one of Michael's first companions and served in the mission office for quite some time.  They are now campus buddies back at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.
